True Crime: New York City


Published 2012


Just as the Grand Theft Auto series was reaching new heights of popularity with GTA3 and Vice City, many imitators were released. One of them, True Crime: Streets of LA, was popular enough to warrant a sequel, this time set in New York. The game stars street thug turned police officer Marcus Reed, who must solve the murder of his mentor and fellow officer Terry Higgins, while keeping the streets of Manhattan safe from crime. The game itself plays pretty much like a GTA game, except you have a badge and can now arrest people. Further aping trends set by Rockstar, the game features plenty of voice acting from several Hollywood stars such as Mickey Rourke and Christopher Walken.

This game was heavily trashed by the gaming press, and rightly so. When it was released for the 2005 holiday season, it was a rushed and buggy mess. The game would crash often on consoles, and certain copies of the game contained a bug that would make the game unbeatable. A PC port was quietly released later which fixed most of the issues with console copies, but had its own set of problems. I feel like this game gets a bad rep. In spite of all the bugs, it's still quite a fun alternative to GTA. Don't let the tone of the game's intro fool you either; this game is just as stupid and silly as the original and apes from cop shows and films just as much.
